I ran into this article this afternoon after my commute home from school. This makes me so pissed off. I honestly think this 18 year old should be put behind bars for a long time. I have ridden and driven past where this "accident" took place at least a 500 times in 20+ years that I lived here and there are major problems.
Here is the article...
1. People drive WAY TOO FAST on that road (Lakewood Blvd) and the cops don't even bat an eye.
2. The road where Mr. Clary was hit is extremely wide. To lose control, travel almost 100 feet across three lanes, hit a person, drag them 60 feet and then travel another 50 feet means you were going REALLY FAST.
3. ALL of the teenagers around this area have BAD driving habits and act like a car tool to act like an butthole. I could easily say that 80% of the people who ride my butt on the freeway, cut me approaching aoff red light just to slam on their brakes, fly around me because I am only going 75 on freeway are no older than 21.
